Review by Matt Jost

Artist: Baron Von Alias f/ Foreign Beggars
Title: Overload
Label: Burn Block Beats

Hard on the heels of his "Timepiece" album, Newcastle's Baron Von Alias releases new material with "Overload." Steesh's beat is electronically wired but enough balanced and grounded in hip-hop to prevent a short circuit. Or maybe a jolt is what rap listeners would need every now and then? Either way this is still some degrees of separation away from commercial fare and really a solid slice of UK rap, Baron and guests Foreign Beggars delivering more complex than your average rhyme patterns in refreshing accents. It's hard to believe that small singles like this one truly can "give the whole rap scene a refresh," but for a lucky few it might just do the trick.
